Kenny holds a B.S. in Biology and a minor in chemistry. While that might not sound like a direct line into the power tool industry, his analytical and scientific mindset help him design repeatable testing methods for Pro Tool Reviews’ head-to-head testing and offer highly objective comparisons in his reviews.

Kenny’s life around power tools started early. His grandfather was an airplane mechanic in WW2 and took up woodworking as a hobby after retiring from the power industry. Building everything from bookshelves to lazy Susans, he became extremely accomplished while his young grandson observed, fascinated at the way raw wood could turn into something both beautiful and functional. In fact, Kenny still uses several pieces that his grandfather made more than 30 years ago.

At home, Kenny’s dad made the family budget stretch further by doing many DIY repairs around the house. From his dad, he was able to learn irrigation, landscaping, car maintenance, basic electrical, and more. He even rewired their bass boat for fun one weekend as a young teenager.

Looking back, both family and friends were significant influences on Kenny’s knowledge and use of tools. No one could have known then what God in his providence would move him into as a career. Now more than 10 years into his role as the Managing Editor of Pro Tool Reviews, he has enjoyed seeing many of the greatest innovations in tool technology develop and launch, changing the way both Pros and DIYers work.

When he’s not diving into the latest tools to arrive at the Pro Tool Reviews World Headquarters or building the latest buying guides, Kenny’s passions include his faith, his family, and the outdoors.

On any given day, you can find him in the kitchen (affectionately known as The Village Idiot Pub & Grill) preparing a meal for his wife and two children (they’re twins) or the church potluck on Sunday. His smoked brisket on his Traeger and grilled surf and turf on his Big Green Egg are legendary, and there’s a better than average chance he’s going to smell like BBQ smoke several days a week.

When he has the time to relax in the outdoors with his wife, they’ll often be fishing on his flats boat in Tampa Bay, cycling the roads and trails around Lakeland, or sometimes just in their hammocks in the backyard listening to a sermon or podcast. When they’re stuck inside, Kenny and his wife enjoy plotting their next backcountry adventure to the Rocky Mountains, planning a kayaking trip on Florida’s rivers, or looking for the best deals on a Caribbean getaway.
